This THP is about 7 miles north of Westport, CA and a mile east of Rockport, CA (unit A is adjacent to residents along Rockport Lane) and Highway 1 along the Mendocino coastline. Mendocino Redwood Company is planning a tractor and cable logging operation on steep and unstable slopes in redwood and Douglas fir forests at an elevation of 10 to 1,240 feet. There are 37 landslide terrain sites in the THP area including 18 debris slides, 13 cut bank failures and multiple rockfalls, fill failures and steep head wall swales. Mendocino Redwood Company is planning to use ground based equipment on steep slopes over 65% grade, and/or on slopes over 50% grade with a high erosion hazard within units B, C and D. 36 road drainage sites are planned for work including rocking, dip construction, ditch cleaning, culvert repair/replacement and restoration of washed out crossings. There are 2 spotted owl nesting territories within .7 miles of the THP area.
